My peers often ask, “What are you doing this weekend?” My normal response is “taking a nap” this is not what the verse implies. The verse means taking your problems, your expectations, your everything to God. Repentance is a noun: action of repenting, sincere regret or remorse, rest is a verb: to cease work or movement in order to recover strength. Trust is a noun: firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.
In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your salvation. Isaiah 30:15 b
The Message Bible says, God the Master, the Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me, the very thing you have been willing to do. Isaiah 30:15
I love to do acrostics: Rest.
Rely on God, submit to God and resist the devil daily. James 4:7
Embrace your relationship and be encouraged, God is with you daily. Phil 2: 1-4
Stop. Worry, “Come to me who are weary and I will give you rest” daily. Matthew 11: 28-30
“Trust and obey for there is no other way”. Be with God daily. Psalm 25: 1-5 Psalm 46:1 Isaiah 40:30-31
When I rely on God, submit to God, resist temptation, embrace my relationship, stop worry, trust and obey, I experience rest in my salvation.
I have a life time of Christian music in my life. I am so thankful for the songs that I can sing.
Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! Thou art the Potter, I am the clay. Mold me and make me after Thy will, While I am waiting, Yielded and still.
Father God, I come humbly come before you today, you are the Potter, you are the Creator, you are Holy, you are the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning, the End. Your word says my strength will come from you all I need to do is settle down in complete dependence on you. Mold me, make me Lord to be the woman you want me to be, let me be still and know that you are God. Let me REST.
